DESCRIPTION:
Surprisingly plush and creamy, aromas and flavors of tart citrus lead with hints of white pear, delicious apple and a bit of lemon meringue and toasted almonds. Balanced, with moderate acidity, the brightness of the Chardonnay fruit shines through.



Chardonnay was harvested late night and early morning at the coolest part of the day, quickly to gentle pressing. A portion of the wine was fermented in stainless, with 25% in tank and 75% in French oak (20% new) for six months prior to bottling. Some 80% of the wine was allowed to undergo secondary malolactic fermentation to find the right balance, allowing a solid acid backbone to be balanced with a creamy mouthfeel and lush texture.

Plenty of sliced apple, lemon and stone aromas follows through to a full body, layers of fruit and lots of cream and cooked apple. Phenolic tension too. Intense finish.
